Still sinning in November!

So I went to Lowe's thinking I was just gonna look when lo and behold I came upon some orchids that they had just received therefore they weren't dried up and about dead. This one is supposed to smell strongly of orange blossoms so of course I couldn't pass it up...right? ;)
Haven't been able to find much info so far online about this cultivar but the info I have come across all states it does have a great scent. Yay!

Robet, NO WORRIES, fo you are not alone pal!! Laughing very loud right now..

That is a great choice for orchids, while I don't think it's a good idea for me to tell you about the one I just got and the adventure I am about to embark on. I will tell you though, that if you want to go on that ride with me, just let me know, and I will tell you of some of the most POWERFUL fragrant orchids you have ever smelled, one that fills an entire room, that is if you are up for more sins? lol

By the way, I hope that orchid does very well for you:-)

Robert, congrats on your sin. But it is beautiful... orange blossom, who can resist that!

Mike, what orchid are you talking about? is it start with C...? I had experiences of growing oriental orchid... it is very fragrant but not always there.... People said you have to clam youeself down then you will smell its fragrance when you are not paying attention...

I will post when they flower Robert, like my oncidium twinkle - which was from my previous batch in the summer! I think I like it more each day, the fragrance inncreases and it is very strange, can't say it's vanilla nor chocolate exactly...Maybe some kind of bubblebath that wants to imitate vanilla chocolate cookies or smth...
